Next patient, please

13 September 2013

THE doctors' surgery was going to be demolished in the course of a £19-million redevelopment of an area of Blacon, in Chester diocese, and it would be 18 months before a new clinic could be built for them. So the people of Holy Trinity without the Walls, on the edge of the development site, stepped in and offered to let the GPs rent part of the church hall.

Alterations were made to create two clinical rooms and a reception area, although the main part of the hall remains as it was, and all the usual church and other activities, such as the community lunch and meetings of the uniformed groups, can take place as before. Dr Ann McNutt, and the receptionist, Margy Hughes (left and centre of picture), have expressed great pleasure at the quality of the rooms that have been created, and the Rector, the Revd Christina Upton (right), says that she is delighted that the church has been able to help the community.
